The AirBox is the first wind-resistant softbox, utilizing wind tunnel technology with light dispersion technology, giving the photographic industry the first wind resistant light modifier on the market.

The internal air flow system guides the air through the box - the open holes in the front allow air to flow through the softbox. Users can regulate air flow by opening and closing the air vents on the side of the softbox as needed. As you open the vents, you are also regulating the light value of the softbox. The inner air flow baffle helps provide light dispersion throughout the box. Remove the inner baffle and create a hot spot with a vignette.

We've all seen
people with their arms awkwardly extended trying to take a photo or shoot a video
and include themselves in the shot. The XShot is a telescopic rod that attaches
to any compact digitalcamera or hand-held video camera and allows photographers
and videographers to be a part of the memories they capture.



Simply connect any digital compact camera to the XShot adapter using the built-in
thumb screw and adjust to the desired angle. Engage the self-timer, extend the
XShot, aim and shoot. The XShot provides over 3 feet of reach, which is enough
extension to include as many as 5 people in a shot. This patented pending product
is made of high quality stainless steel, closes to nine inches, weighs 3.9 ounces
and neatly fits into a pocket.



One such effect is achieved with the XShot when the camera is placed in video
mode and the user spins in place 360 degrees. When played back, the video appears
three-dimensional and the subject seems to be standing still while the background
revolves.



The XShot sells for $24.95 and is available online at: www.xshotpix.com.

YPOC, a leading producer of custom canvas prints and pioneer of innovative print-on-canvas processes, has re-designed its website to help consumers take all the guesswork out of converting their precious photos into amazing PhotoGiclées on canvas. By incorporating proprietary Image Resolution Detection software, uploaded images are automatically "evaluated" to determine all canvas enlargements that will render excellent results. Canvas sizes deemed too large based on the quality of the original image file can still be chosen, but only those sizes that will showcase the image best will be highlighted, helping to avoid customer disappointment and removing the customer need to use image editors like Photoshop.

Zacuto's DSLR Baseplate Kits are said to be the new standard for DSLR cinematography.

Available now, the new Zacuto DSLR kits are universal and will work with all cameras and accessories. Zacuto kits allow users to make DSLR's work much like camcorders. All kits are balanced, which is critical for smooth movement and less user fatigue in both tripod and handheld use. Zacuto's trademarked Z-Release (quickrelease) allows for fast installation of components like an articulating
arm, matte box, follow focus, wireless mic, on-board monitor, an audioadapter, and more. Zacuto kits give you all the components you need for your camera package right out of the box. With various price points, no confusion, and the ability to be used with a tripod, steadicam, dolly, handheld and shoulder mount; you can purchase the kit that is perfect for you and your type of shooting.  All Zacuto products are made in the USA and come with a lifetime warranty.

DSLR camera's typically have low lens mounts, making it not possible tomount a matte box without raising the camera very high. The combination of Zacuto's height adjustable Universal Baseplate and their new Z-Spacer allows you to mount any matte box or follow focus, like the Z-Focus to any DSLR.
